I consider myself an anglophile. It could be because my first European vacation was a trip to London with hubby. We had so much fun and I had an immediate crush on all things British. In fact I’ve missed seeing other vacation-worthy European destinations due to my wanting to further tour England.
I admire Charles Faudree’s perfect blend of English and French furniture and his clever way with accessories. Where travel marries home decor influences in our home I’m about a 60/40 split between French and English, with English winning the floor. That said, I don’t have a single Union Jack in the house!
This is what I visualize when I think of the Union Jack…
Who doesn’t love a thatched cottage?
These trunks from Amazon are pretty cute, although the colors seem a little washed out. The large one could make a nice coffee table for a family room, what do you think?
Love the Keep Calm message (above) with the Union Jack background.

I have long admired the work of Marian of Miss Mustard Seed but when I saw this chest she refinished I knew she was not only talented but a fan of the Union Jack as well!
So, what do you think? Is the stove a bit much? 🙂
I love the U.S.A. but I certainly enjoy the U.K. as well!
